I will be talking about the Season Preview for 2023 Brewers. Opening Day will be One week from Thursday at Wrigley Field in (Chicago) at 1:20 Pm playing the Chicago Cubs. Brewers will be Starting Corbin Burnes for the second consecutive Year in Chicago and Chicago would probably be starting Marcus Stroman or Kyle Hendricks.
The Home Opener will be on Monday April 3rd at 1:10 Pm against the New York Mets. A early big Weekend Division Series against Arch rival St Louis Cardinals April 7-9. It’s very important to win those games because definitely could decide who wins the NL Central Division Title in 2023.

Josh Hader would be facing His former team for the 1st time since the Shocking Trade during the Trade Deadline on August 1st, 2023. Also Kolten Wong would be facing His former team for the first time since he Got traded in the off-season for the Seattle Marniers.

Then the last 6 Homes games and games of the Season are against Cardinals and Cubs which could have Huge Division and playoff implications.
Biggest Storylines for 2023 Brewers Season Preview:
1. Contract Extension Talks for Key Players like Willy Adames, and Corbin Burnes One thing that is very important to remember Corbin Burnes is now angry with the Brewers organization because he was taken to a arbitration hearing for just a little over 700k difference in salary. So Maybe Corbin will be pitching motivated this Season to convince the Brewers to give him a well deserved Contract extension.
Willy Adames is coming off a Record Breaking HR Season for a Brewers Shortstop and he’s expressed that how much he loves it here in Milwaukee. But he’s Also said that his value could be not in the Brewers pay scale so that will be a interesting thing to follow as the season goes on for 2023 Brewers.
2. Keston Hiura and Luke Voit no Options left:
Brewers will have a very difficult decision to make between Keston Hiura and Luke Voit because they both don’t have any Minor league options left and both are primarily 1st Baseman/ Designated Hitters. Also they both have unusual left and Right Splits meaning they both have better Numbers against Right handed Pitchers than Left handed Pitchers.
3. Christian Yelich at least returning to All-star Form, and Offense taking pressure off the Pitching staff?
There’s no debate if Christian Yelich could return to at least to All-star Form the 2023 Brewers will be a very scary team because Brewers have a very deep Pitching staff and lots of Speed and Power in the Lineup. One last thing if the 2023 Brewers could score a lot of runs it would take a ton of pressure off the Pitching staff and that could be very helpful for the 2023 Brewers winning the NL Central Division Title.
